Where is everybody? We’re not sure if the photographer turned up too early or too late for this apparent press conference at Merida Airport to celebrate the start on 7 April of Interjet’s twice-weekly service to Havana. It becomes the airline’s fourth route to the Cuban capital.
- Interjet on 7 April launched its fourth route to Havana (HAV). It now operates twice-weekly flights from Merida (MID) to the Cuban capital, a sector length of 781 kilometres. The service will be flown by the airline’s SSJ 100s and faces no competition. This is the carrier’s fourth route to Havana (it already operates to Cuba from Cancún, Mexico City and Monterrey) but only its second route from Merida. Traffic figures from ASUR for Merida Airport show that international traffic at the airport was up 43% in March to 15,175, while domestic traffic was up 19% to 144,290.
